Abstract

Chemical burns represent a very small percentage of the total of burns in children. Those produced by cyanoacrylate glue have characteristics that make them more complex in their management. Cyanoacrylate is an acrylic resin which rapidly polymerizes, so adhesives that contain it can bind two surfaces strongly in just a minute. We report the case of a girl treated at our health center for injuries caused by contact with this “superglue”.
